Why You'll Love This Place

A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review
  • Golden hillsides, soaring oaks and sycamores, and a sparkling, private lake set the stage for a truly romantic celebration at this expansive retreat. Though just 30 minutes from Santa Barbara, it feels worlds away, with striking views of the Santa Ynez Mountains and endless trails that wind through 10,500-acre property.
  • There's no shortage of spectacular event spaces: exchange vows on a sunkissed bluff above the lake, on an enchanting creekside lawn, or beneath the sprawling arms of the sycamores. The indoor venues reflect the ranch's elegant, Western-inspired vibes, with high-beamed ceilings, stone hearths, hardwood floors, and massive windows to preserve the fabulous views.
  • Blending the welcoming vibes of a California dude ranch with the luxury and peace of a plush resort, this is the perfect setting for a weekend-long destination wedding. Welcome your guests with fun activities, like horseback riding or archery, or simply kick back and relax poolside. A luxe spa is on-site for any last-minute pre-wedding primping.
